Tech Won't Save Us

Silicon Valley has a solution for everything, but who do its ideas really serve?

Every Thursday, Paris Marx is joined by a new guest to critically examine the tech industry, its thought leaders, and the worldview it spreads.

They challenge the notion that tech alone can drive our world forward by showing that separating tech from politics has consequences for us all, especially the most vulnerable.

Tech Won't Save Us isn't simply about tearing down tech. It also presents radical ideas for a better world and better technology.
